KonkanFood

Food has always attracted me and been away from home for years for my studies and work taught me the importance of good home made food. Food makes me happy. I have named by blog "KonkanFood", I come from the konkan region of India and my food is majorly influenced by this region. I love eating and like to incorporate the delicious dishes I come across in my day to day life.

Egg plant is a very versatile vegetable. Add to any preparation or just have it alone, it enhances the flavor. One of the meatless days and I tried and made this curry, very simple to do and requires a few ingredients.
